Five Nights at Freddy’s

Android = £2.99

Apple = £2.99

The popular horror game, soon-to-be-movie, terrified audiences when it was released in 2014. In Five Nights at Freddy’s, you play as a night-time security guard, hired to watch over Freddy Fasbear’s Pizza restaurant and its animatronic robots - only the robots are mobile and homicidal! 

Whichever device you choose to purchase the game onto must have at least 2GB of RAM in order to run this heart-pumping game. Can you survive all five nights? 

The Walking Dead

Android = free (with in-app purchases)

Apple = free (with in-app purchases)

The Walking Dead is a popular zombie franchise that has been expanded into multiple types of merchandise since the TV show released in 2010. It has been running for a decade, with no signs of stopping yet, so these TV-based games are a popular Halloween choice.

The Walking Dead is a five-part episodic game where every action and decision you make changes the story around you. This game is perfect for fans of zombies, gore, and action-thrillers.

On Android, there are a bunch of other games based around the TV show, like The Walking Dead: Our World, The Walking Dead: Road to Survival, and The Walking Dead No Man's Land

Halloween City

Android = free

Apple = free

Build your own Halloween Town with this world-building app for Android and iOS. Fill your new land with vampires, witches, zombies, mummies, and many more monsters. You can also crossbreed these Halloween creatures.

Collect as many coins as possible to keep unlocking more items and adventures. You can share your city with your friends, and see who’s built the scariest residency. This game is more family-friendly, and is suitable for younger children.   

The Walking Dead: Dead Yourself

Android = free

Apple = free

If you’re less into action games, and more into roleplay, then this app will provide the perfect spooky transformation. 

Zombify yourself like the undead characters in the TV show, The Walking Dead. Simply take a photo of yourself and edit using realistic zombie filters. Watch yourself turn grotesque with drooped and yellowed eyes, rotting teeth, mottled and discoloured skin, and balding hair.

Show off your new look by sharing with friends or on social media.

Halloween Voice Transformer

Apple = free

Record yourself talking, then experiment with different voice-modifiers to scare your friends. Change your voice to sound like an alien, the Grim Reaper, a witch, a robot, a ghost, or another Halloween monster. 

For the ultimate prankster, you can save your recordings and email them to your friends for a scare!

Scary Voice Changer

Android = free

The Android version of Apple’s Halloween Voice Transformer. Transform your voice using horror filters, from mummy, chainsaw, serial killer, vampire, clown, and more. 

You can also use the sounds to change your ringtone or notification alerts. 

Creepypasta

Android = free

Apple = free

Less into gaming and more into stories? Creepypasta features more than 14,000 scary stories to keep you up at night. Beginning originally as an online, social media narrative, Creepypasta has propelled to popularity. 

The app offers a wide range of stories, with voice narration, that you can add to your favourites. Similar to how a Kindle works, the app remembers where you were in a story, so you can pick up right where you left off. 

Search by title, reading time, and other keywords. You can also print the stories if you’d like, and add “Dark Mode” for that late-night reading. 


There are tons of other sound-changing, visual-altering, and heart-stopping Halloween-themed apps out there on Google Play and the App Store. What’s your favourite? Let us know on Twitter
